Sorry for the lack of dining during your stay. Hopefully in the future we will be able to open daily. Thank you for your visit with us.

The property was beautiful and the grounds were well kept and clean. Dislikes would be the low water pressure in the lodge rooms and the "issuing" of towels/supplies each day. You had to ask for additional towels, toilette paper, etc. each day instead of being sent with linens for room. We were disappointed that there were no community firepits or grills for the lodge areas, only for cottages.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and that everything was clean. We are in process of updating some things but keeping the rustic feel to the lodge. So check us out again in the near future.

Scenic and relaxing

We love this state park. The forest and lake is very beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in a lake-view cottage which was adequately comfortable and very clean. I cannot stress enought just how beautiful this area is. Any discomfort encountered in the lower class accomadations is made up for in the tranquility and beauty of the surroundings. This is not a 5-star hotel, it is a state park. The cottage was clean, bug-free, and most all needs are met. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a kitchen and brought our own groceries so we didn't eat in the restaurant. The kitchen was adequately stocked with utensils, dishes and pots and pans. I wished I had brought paper towels and the dish soap provided was sub-standard. The bathroom was large with an excellent bath/shower (great water pressure). The bed had an ok mattress, but I missed my own bed. Every thing was clean! Overall, we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend for anyone looking to get back to nature in relaxing get-away.
